  • Use a VPN

    If you're not using a VPN then assume everyone knows everything about you. No one knows anything about me because i use a VPN, you can't find me on Twitter, you can't find me on Facebook, nor YouTube or Google. Use a VPN for fucks sake just do it.

      I pity all who know at least a bit about me. And I have extra free eye bleach for those courageous doxers, who would ever behold my IRL pic. Let holy Alzheimer and saint Parkinson relieve their pain, oh, poor curious hackers.

            I am Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite post on Jeremy, aka The Quartering's, poorly managed website.

              The man who makes money advertising VPN services recommends using VPN to mask the fact that you are a Brony.
              Opera has an integrated advertising blocker and free VPN, for the paranoiacs.

              You can't find me on Twitter or Facebook either.
              Because you can't pay me enough to go on either site, it's literally Clostridium botulinum levels of toxicity over there.

                You are absolutely right, I forgot to put it in italics. Fixed now, though.

              I WOULD use a VPN if I could find one that didn't completely fuck with my computer's performance and also block me from some of my favorite sites who apparently don't like visitors who hide their IP address

              Everybody says use a VPN but never tell you what the catch is, just like everything else in life. There's ALWAYS a catch

                No catch, other than psycho people. I would say - use one.

              Most tracking, profiling etc is done by cookies which a VPN isn't going to stop.

                https doesn't hide activity on a site, it just means your network traffic can't be intercepted between the browser and the server (it can be intercepted, but not read or altered), so man in the middle attacks won't work. VPN's don't do much about tracking you in terms of what websites hold against you, it just hides from your ISP that you connected to certain site, but depending on the VPN you use that might not help you against governments or legal requests to disclose. VPNs aren't really going to help you against getting your data or identity stolen either. Similar to https it's good to protect your traffic between the browser and the VPN server but after that you're still in the wild west and it doesn't protect you from viri, phishing etc. Other things VPNs are good for is non-http traffic such as your email etc, as if you are somewhere you don't trust the connection like public wifi then a VPN will protect your email credentials from snooping.

                  Apart from the obvious ("you don't trust the connection like public wifi then a VPN will protect your email credentials from snooping"), you are severely downplaying the role a VPN does. I won't go into it here coz it would be pages long but i will ask this:

                  If you are so sure, Aidy, then log in to all of your social accounts without a VPN activated. I dare ya.

                  "I won't go into here" - So give me a link. As for browsing the web without a VPN, I already do.

                Yeah, "free" VPN's are known to be free because they track you, and record everything you do, basically negating the reason for a VPN. Well done.

                    VPN is important part of today's online privacy. It is necesaary to protect yourself and your data from online threats and VPN is a main solution for it. That's why it's important to select a VPN provider that doesn't keep logs. In reality, if it's the spy agencies you're concerned about then you need something so much better than just a VPN and asking on public forums like Whirlpool wouldn't be a smart idea either. I only care to provide advice as far as basic personal privacy is concerned.
